Leadership Promises - Leaves More than an Inheritance

"For when he dies he shall carry nothing away; His glory shall not descend after him."  Psalm 49:17
Leadership Promises - Leaves More than an Inheritance
Leadership Promises - Leaves More than an Inheritance.
God encourages us to fix our eyes on the things that endure. In light of eternity, leaders cannot become consumed with the temporary. Only a vision that outlives them, a vision connected to eternity, will fulfill a godly leader. In other words, we must build a legacy.

A huge difference exists between a legacy and an inheritance. Anyone can leave an inheritance. An inheritance is something you leave to your family or loved ones. (It also fades.) A legacy is something you leave in your family and loved ones. Consider these differences:
         Inheritance   /   Legacy
  • Something you give to others / Something you place in others.
  • Temporarily brings them happiness / Permanently transforms them.
  • Eventually fades as it is spent / Lives on long after you die.
  • Your activity may or may not pay off/Your activity becomes achievement.
Excerpt from The Maxwell Leadership Bible
Good day!
